PAINFUL

HOLY CRAP!
The following video has he blood in my body boiling and eyes and heart filled with pain. This is soooooo real. The world is in so much pain...PEACE PEACE PEACE PEACE PEACE PLEASE PEACE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE-Stop the War-Stop The WAR!! STOP FIGHTING!!

TOTAL DISRESPECT!

I think this is the MOST DISRESPECTFUL THING EVER!!!!!
I hate it! I hate it! I hate it!
Unbelievable!-I hate men that do things like this...Usually i would say (No offense) but at this point TAKE offense!
TO ANY MALE-I DO NOT CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE!-IF YOU DISRESPECT WOMEN-PUBLICLY IN THE MANNER SHOWN IN THE VIDEO BELOW-YOU DESERVE ANY CONSEQUENCE THAT COMES ALONG WITH YOUR ACTIONS-NO MATTER HOW HARSH IT IS...I KNOW YOUR THINKING IM TALKING CRAZY RIGHT NOW-WELL-GOOD, CAUSE I AM....
I DO NOT CARE IF YOU THINK SHE IS DISRESPECTING HER SELF FOR COMING OUTSIDE DRESSED THE WAY SHE IS OR ASSUMING SHE IS READY TO EMBRACE YOUR DISRESPECT! THIS IS CRAZY.



I totally don't go out to events where i know this type of behavior will take place.
We all know where the breeding grounds are for this type of action-and ya'll still go out and put your selves in these compromising positions.Where is the RESPECT?
STAY OUT THE WRONG PLACES!!!!
MEN WHAT HAPPENED TO BE BEING ACCOUNTABLE-IF YOU DONT RESPECT THIS STUFF TELL THE GUY THAT YOU SEE DOING THIS TO FALL BACK...TO THE GUYS IN THE VIDEO I WISH I WOULD TAKE EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM AND STRIP THEM BUTT NAKED AND HAVE PEOPLE SLAP THERE ASS IN THE MIDDLE OF TIME SQUARE FOR 6 YEARS STRAIGHT.
IF YOU DO THIS STUFF -YOU GETS NO RESPECT!

Pictures From the Dirty Hands Caravan Tour!

Germany!

Oh Do i have a Story to tell!
Once upon a time a few years back Divine gets a request to do a speaking engagement out in Germany for the Staples Corp about getting young people engaged in becoming social Entrepreneurs etc.....So i said YES of course and immateriality call my Dude LIVE
and asked him if he wanted to Roll with me to Europe and what you think he said?....INDEED..
So weeks go by and me and sir Wire leave NY on a fly Lufthansa Flight to the Germ..
On our way to Hamburg-we had to make a stop off in Munich to connect...So hours go by and we arrive!
TOUCH DOWN (Two Arms up)!
We then realize that we have an additional plane to catch in less than an hour and we gotta go through customs etc and security ....So we are rushing to get to our next flight and ripping the airport we go, and through customs , checkpoints etc...
We make it to our flight just in time-YES!..Board another Lufthansa Airline and off we go to HAMBURG baby! Me and live kicking it and the last time we flew (i think it was to sundance out in UTAH) we had a blast and we took pictures crazy videos met cool folks, and when we landed in NY the fun was killed cuz i left my damn cameras in my jacket that was left on a plane somewhere....so right before we got excited to get off the plane to celebrate Germany-i say "nah no celebrating till we check our pockets and our belongings....
AND IT NEVER FAILS!
I realize that in between customs and checkpoints security etc-i left my "EVERYTHING" in Munich!!!!! Wallet, Passport all that!
Damn!!!!!!
So i looked over at live had my moment...for like 20 seconds....and then I pressed the Phuckit Button-and shrugged my shoulders and we said the Adventure begins! I have no ID and NO MONEY..nothing! So we started .......

video video

.....The Trip was awesome...make a long story short...We made enough money out there to take care of us-had a luxury car on the autobahn never missed a meal, went out every night, and had Euro's to take back to exchange....Now we go back to the airport and im thinking this is sweet-im just gonna go back to Munich and pick my things up from security and im good (i called and they had it)-went to my ticket counter in hamburg and they tell me-my flight isnt going back to MUNICH its going to Frankfurt!!!!!! But if i wanted them to change it -it would be 400 EUROS per person !!!!!!! lmao....there goes all the cash we were bringing back.....
The moral of the story....No sweat! Grace under Fire, be optimistic, LIVE IT UP-Take Risks-and live-MORE!!!oh and haste is waste!

I LOVE TEACHERS!

I would like to share with you for those that dont know me as "ANDY"...Man o Man-i went to several schools growing up where i left my mark on the lives of the student body and of the faculty! In more ways than one...lol...If any one been to school with me knew i was OFF THE HOOK-Better yet I Was DISCONNECTED! -lol...
A mix between Ferris Bueller, Dennis the Menace, and throw in a lil bit of the biggest class clown you could think of...Students that are reading this blog-please understand that this is not a green light for you to start wilding out in class more than ever!-It was just my path in becoming who i am today...And ooooo was it an ill path...a lot of my buddies back then that shared the same path didnt make it to my destination in life, at some point i took a different direction than most and its unfortunate to see some of them locked up or in a poor circumstances due to the choices made years ago that they wouldn't think to see haunt them in the future....(Hold your heads)

This Blog is about me going back to one of schools JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL 113 located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn...But this time i went back to speak to the younger me-in search for the younger me..I knew that when i was in school acting out, i didnt know that i was seeking a creative outlet for what i was dealing with a youngster-and school became that zone where i let it all out in every way possible...

Till i met Mrs EDWARDS! in a Bridge class i was put in after my 7th Grade year , where the adminastration told me i would have to repeat a second year of 7th grade due to my poor academics and behavior patterns...(One of the scariest feelings)-But Mrs Edwards was the very first Teacher i came in contact with that showed the love all teachers should show a student- a genuine connection to young people...she spent most of her time educating me about life and choices we make and how it affects our future...she also would spend most of her time speaking to me about my future and we spoke about it so much that every time i acted out she would remind me that what i was doing didnt add up to what i wanted in the future! Damn She was good!

She pushed all of us, and she begged me to do what i needed to do in that class. I told her i didnt desrve to be left back into a bridge class-And she replied "oh yea, well prove it to me and your self that you dont belong in here and show us where you belong!" THAT WAS IT!
THAT WAS IT!-In just a few months i did every thing i needed to get out of that class and before you knew it-i was in the 8th grade mid semester in time for me to graduate on time!!
Man i LOVE Mrs Edwards-and any one who was in that class with me- know she was the best...

So 10 years later i went back to the school to see mrs edwards and she was still in that class teaching...here are some flicks!

MR BLOOM!!-Gym Teacher
Damn, he must have told me to sit on my floor spot
a million times more than he said hello to humans...

LOOKY LOOKY Omnesia!!
We were students there and she is staff now-Fly!

LEE-This dude was my ACE in school-Partner in crime
He was the nicest basket ball player back then..

Showing Teacher LOVE

AMAZING!!
Students art work!
My art work was on the walls but not on paper-but all over the walls!

This was the exact class room!

Mrs Edwards Looking on Proud!


Spoke to all the young boys in the school!
"yall can have this world!"

Showing Love to the principal Mr.Kirkland
He was a teacher in the school when i was there..

A message to all the teachers out there...Please be Connected to your students. Please understand that teaching is not a simple task-its an ART!
Our children are in class rooms with a lot of disconnected facilitators and i remember what i did to teachers i had that couldnt educate effectivly...
Its no bragging on my end but i made a few teachers quit there jobs mid lesson.
Our Babies need to be taught and taught right...
I LOVE THE TEACHER!

April -May 2008 in REVIEW

THE DIRTY HANDS CARAVAN TOUR
Los Angeles, CA - April 29, 2008 - Three bio-diesel buses transporting more than 150 activists, otherwise known as The Dirty Hands Caravan, departed the grounds of the Coachella Festival in Indio, CA at approximately 2:30PM PST on Monday, April 28. The buses will travel 1800 miles stopping in numerous cities over the next week until they reach New Orleans on Friday, May 2nd. The caravan, which was entirely conceived and organized over the past two weeks, is the coming together of individuals encouraged to “get involved” in any way they feel compelled, whether its by cleaning up parks or neighborhoods, caring for the sick or needy, or speaking out on behalf of issues such as immigration reform. The project is the brainchild of Sean Penn, who yesterday appeared on the festival mainstage inviting the audience to spontaneously join the caravan. Minutes after his speech, dozens of concert goers signed up for the week long mission.
